I have no doubt that the historical data that the Theory is based on is important and demands careful study and examination even, especially, in America's public schools.
I also suspect that the protests against it in many parts of the nation are a legitimate response to the poor teaching of the Theory by public school teachers...
...but I couldn't imagine a more pathetic spokesperson or representative for the theory than Joy Reid.
After playing these clips, and more, from the interaction between Reid and Rufo, Greg Gutfeld, on his late night news/comedy FNC show opined of Joy, "What a host."
Joy's not alone.
There's an arrogance and sanctimony among so many of the advocates of Critical Race Theory, that I'm certain many people are predisposed to reject it before they know the first thing about it...based on the people who are its apostles and the way the Gospel according to Critical Race Theory is preached.
Oh, and note the fourth link. Joy's being lambasted for her faulty understanding of CRT.
My guess is that GOPs are going to ride the anti-CRT train right up to the 022 election. This is precisely the sort of outrage that draws people to the polls in an off year election.
And, as long as Fox and Newsmax, et.al. can play clips of angry, hateful CRT advocates like Joy Reid the chances of a GOP landslide in 022 increase.
